IOS is Apple's operating system that was first developed for the iPhone. Although currently available for many of the company's devices, such as the iPad and iPod Touch, and is used in many parts of the world, not everything you read about the software can be considered true. Many myths about the program are told daily some of the most common are that background apps affect the battery or all apps get to the iPhone first.

Although iOS is a closed system and is therefore less likely to be hit by malware, the program is not entirely immune to Internet viruses. Even though Apple is reviewing all apps in the App Store, it is still possible to get infected apps that compromise your iPhone. The system is also vulnerable to hacker attacks through free Wi-Fi networks in public places such as cafes, restaurants and bars.

Even if Touch ID has its flaws and can be hacked from places where the user has touched, this is very difficult to do. Every method involving fingerprinting has problems, but the system developed by Apple can be considered secure to ensure that your personal information is not collected.

3. All good apps go first to iPhone (iOS)

It's true that many developers launch new apps on iOS first, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are the best. The App Store is often chosen for a release, leaving the Google Play Store for a second moment. However, if the developer wants or wants a broader distribution, publish to both iOS and Android.

4. On iOS, you can change everything you can change on Android

On Android, you can customize the system to your liking, but on iOS, it's not that easy. You can jailbreak and customize your iPhone beyond what the platform allows by default, but it will be impossible to download new versions and security updates after that. So while iOS has slightly changed the personalization with the latest updates, still does not correspond freedom given by Android.

5. Closing applications manually saves battery and memory.

This is one of the biggest and most established lies about how the iPhone works. In general, most platform apps cannot run in the background, ie when you go from one app to another, the old one stops running and is saved in RAM. When iOS needs this space, the system itself automatically cleans these applications. Therefore, you do not have to do anything manually.
